Top 2011 Posts:Sharp Rise in Gypsum Prices Likely in New Year

With the end of 2011 approaching, the contributors of NAHB’s Eye on Housing thought it would be useful to take a look at the updates that attracted the most readers over the last year.

In November, we examined a possible 2012 price increase for gypsum. Several NAHB members have expressed concern about gypsum producers’ stated plans for significant price increases in 2012, some as high as 35%. An increase of this magnitude will raise gypsum prices to a level almost 20% above the long-term trend.
